Not-so-happy Tuesday here at 15andmeowing. I hate to say the f-word and hoped to never use it on the blog, but here I go. We have Fleas- I am so ashamed. I don’t know how it happened as our cats never go outside. And I rarely do.
Once in a while my hubby finds a flea and I blame him for going outside all the time. He does wear spray to keep the ticks, mosquitoes, etc. which should prevent fleas too. I told him he should wear flea collars around his ankles when he goes outside. Sunday night, I was rubbing Joanie’s pretty white belly and I saw something black move. I ended up picking 3 off of her and several off of Lucy. I hate to put poisons on the cats, but I had no choice. I went to Dave’s ( the local pet store chain) and purchased Frontline. Including my canned food, I spent over $200 plus I felt like a bad parent whose kids get lice.
The only good part is that Dave’s donates a percentage of your total to the pet charity of your choice so I was able to help Second Chance today. I guess this post counts as medical and my advice is don’t let anyone ( including hubbies) into your home without checking them for fleas first. Have a great day and watch out for fleas.
I will be doing another contest soon so please read daily. Thank you all for stopping by, I hope you didn’t catch any of our fleas.This is Joanie’s pretty white belly pre-fleas:
